I'm migrating my smoke alarms from the main panel to a generator-backed-up subpanel so I'll have fire protection during a power outage. I'm simultaneously replacing the old smoke detectors.
I read that smoke detectors should be on an AFCI protected circuit, but the instruction manuals for both my Kidde Firex Smoke Alarm and my Kidde Firex Heat Alarm say:
The appropriate power source is 120 Volt AC Single Phase supplied from a non-switchable circuit which is not protected by a ground fault interrupter.
My Siemens Combination Type Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter breaker says
Detects line-to-neutral, line-to-ground and series arcs!
Does that mean it's a "ground-fault interrupter" so I shouldn't use it with the alarms?
